LISTEN: Iman Shumpert raps about the playoffs

Iman Shumpert has brought plenty to the table as a Cleveland Cavalier: athleticism, dogged defense, a nifty pull-up game, the occasional three-point shot. Before Tuesday’s Cavs-Celtics game tipped off, Fox Sports Ohio viewers got to see another side of Shump: his skills on the microphone. Shumpert, you see, has long dabbled in hip-hop music, and he recorded a playoff themed tune...

Perkins: There’s nothing you can do to guard LeBron

Only five members of the Cleveland Cavaliers have had the opportunity of playing with or against LeBron James in the playoffs: Mike Miller and James Jones (teammates with the Miami Heat), Shawn Marion and Brendan Haywood (2011 NBA Finals with the Dallas Mavericks), and a player that probably knows the most about him even though he has never been his teammate for a playoff game, Kendrick...

Summer trade of Brendan Haywood could carry 300% tax rate for Cavs

Last Thursday’s trade deadline was a fairly quiet affair for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Sure, you can discuss the merits of Kendrick Perkins and his presence as a fourth big for this streaking team. But largely, the most impactful Cavs news from last week was a non-transaction. After some recent speculation from the blogosphere, the Cavs decided to keep veteran center Brendan Haywood...

Cavs Looking To Make Deal For Big Or Backup PG

The Cleveland Cavaliers, who already have made blockbuster deals this year (J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert and Timofey Mozgov) are still looking to improve their roster before the trade-deadline. According to Lane Adkins, the Cavs are using Brendan Haywood as trade-bait to acquire a backup point guard for Kyrie Irving and a big-man. Wheels are turning […] The post Cavs Looking To Make...

Cavs take Utah’s Delon Wright in ESPN’s 2015 NBA mock draft

Thursday is the NBA trade deadline. And while the Cleveland Cavaliers will be thinking of small deals on the fringes of their roster, it’s also fun to consider possible upgrades during the coming summer. As I discussed last month, a Brendan Haywood trade is much more palatable this season than during the offseason because of the tax consequences. The Cavs aren’t likely to have...

5 Players the Cleveland Cavaliers Could Trade for by the Trade Deadline

With time slipping away to acquire an effective reserve, the Cleveland Cavaliers enter the final days before the NBA trade deadline without any hot commodities that seem certain to fill key areas in the middle and at the point. Right now, rumors are abound about who the team might be targeting. Some will require more finesse to make happen, but really the only bargaining chip the...

Rummaging through the bargain big bin

As we inch closer to Thursday’s 3 p.m. NBA trade deadline, the Cleveland Cavaliers are (still) actively looking for a fourth rotational big man due to the state of affairs behind Kevin Love, Timofey Mozgov, and Tristan Thompson. Brendan Haywood is at the end of the road as he cannot even get meaningful minutes in games such as last Thursday’s Chicago game where Love was out and...

Should the Cavs rest Kevin Love? A WFNY Roundtable

Thus far through the season, the performance from Cleveland Cavaliers power forward Kevin Love has not been what many expected. A three-time All-Star for which the number one pick of the last two drafts was traded has been the subject of plenty of discussion. He has been battling nagging injuries throughout the season, so would he benefit from the Cleveland Cavaliers giving him...

Cavs could unload Brendan Haywood before the summer

When David Griffin masterfully acquired Brendan Haywood this past summer, the entire Cleveland Cavaliers landscape was different than it is today. Since the draft night deal, the wine and gold have added a few All-Stars, a few key role players and a boat load of salary. Haywood’s deal was one that could potentially bring over another max-type player due to his non-guaranteed balloon...

The Cavs have had a busy few weeks they added guards J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert a day before getting Mozgov, trading away firecracker guard Dion Waiters. A few weeks ago when starting center Anderson Varejao...

Loss to Heat shows Cavs still have some fixing to do

Random dribbles following the Cavaliers' 101-91 road loss to the Miami Heat on Christmas Day: 1. Before we get started, I wouldn't be overly concerned about the Cavs. I went through the schedule before the season and predicted a record of 19-11 after 30 games. Right now, they're 17-11. If they split their next two games (at Orlando and home vs. Detroit), that puts them at 18-12....

Cavs Report: Varejao suffers rib injury; and about that D

Some news, notes and thoughts on the Cavaliers as they prepare to host the Indiana Pacers on Saturday: 1. First off, Anderson Varejao was held out of Friday's practice with a rib contusion. That's basically bruised ribs. He is questionable for the Pacers. 2. Varejao has been extremely underrated (what else is new?) -- particularly over the past week or so. The 6-foot-11 big man has...
